KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is planning an event to celebrate the arts and culture of Haiti one year after a devastating earthquake hit the Caribbean country.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, the museum will host "Art in the Evening: Haitian Art: Vibrant Past, Perilous Future." The event takes place a year and one day after the Jan. 12 earthquake.
The museum says docent and Haitian art collector Denise Wierman will discuss the rich legacy and current plight of the country's art. A short animated film titled "Black Dawn" that incorporates the work Hatian artists will be shown.
The event is free. Donations will be accepted for a nonprofit that supports the arts in Haiti.
